Pork butt with chipolte and black beans in my pressure cooker.
This took me back to Fawns kitchen! (I stole it from her)
I have an early morning phone consult on Tuesdays and I take my walk, with my earplug, at the same time. Since I usually walk in my neighborhood, I'll walk 5 blocks down to the Mexican market and the things I buy there are pork butt, beef shanks, queso fresco cheese, jalapenos, sometimes garlic and onions. Of course I would prefer to buy meats that are organic and ideally pasture fed, but guess what...I lived for over 40 years eating nothing but grocery store meats and I didn't die, lol! Torturing myself with this "only organic" stuff can be crazy, besides until I write a blog post about so-called "free range" and organic chicken, it's not what you think anyway!

Shredded chipotle chicken with rice and beans ( next blog post)
I went to the Saratoga farmes market to specifically buy a pasture fed chicken ($5.50 lb), I didn't need much else, but I couldn't resist an organic Crenshaw melon. I purchased some yellow, and green onions, and that was it!
Can you believe that at this moment, (Tues, 5:30am), I haven't had one fresh tomato in my house for 2 days! That will change later this morning, lol! I haven't needed much from the grocery or famers market, in fact I didn't shop the FM on Sunday at all, instead using most of what I already have.
